ok, I'll try to make a long story short...My child is 18 mo and will be going to a well-child dr. visit very soon. I have chosen to not have her get the MMR yet. She has received all other vaxes so far (EXCEPT for and Flu vax). I have the school (she attends 1/wk) and I'm going to have the dr. office people shoving them down my throat when I take her next. I have started researching all the info I can find on vaccines - and I have yet to be convinced of their benefits.
Here's my dilemma - I have her in a baptist church school (the only I could afford to send her to - I do not attend church and although I am spiritual - don't affiliate with any organized religion) I really don't want to be put in a position where I will have to lie in order to get her exempt. I am in Georgia - can you please give me any links that with help?
Please and thanks!
If proceeding with the vax schedule goes against your conscience, I'd argue that you have a religious belief, especially if you think your conscience comes from any sort of higher power.
